I'm now 63 years old, and I'm breathing on 64! I seriously trained in traditional art & music for many years, though life got in the way, so to speak, and I have gone down different paths.

I have a great interest in cultural anthropology & linguistics; libraries (there is nothing like the smell of a library containing thousands of books!); all forms of: architecture (especially wooden architecture from eastern Europe and all of Asia), archaeology, art, music, history (all ages/eras), astronomy, vehicles, animals, technology, fantasy, science fiction, animation, miniatures, anime & manga; all facets of nature; languages; genealogy; ukiyo-e and haiku; archery & martial arts; & some crafts - jewelry and knotting in particular; the supernatural; & very importantly, the interaction of all the above!!!

I realize that I have many favorites & watches. I go to almost all of the artists & general sites several times a month, even several times a week for some.

I've done very little of my own artwork the last 10 years or so, and yes, I have a tendency to live vicariously through others work. I have purchased paper, ink, pencils, pens, etc. to start doing my own work again, as well as supplies for designing & making jewelry. I can get lost in artwork for hours.

And yes, by my watches, Deviant Collection, and Favourites, I am an Otaku!?

そして、はい、私の見て、Deviant Collection、そしてお気に入り、私はオタクです!

There you have it! A brief look into my life & times!

Thank you for adding "Rock Balancing" to your favorites. In my wild and impetuous youth I spent one summer studying with Group of Buddhist monks. one of the many thing they taught me was Rock Balancing. I have done it on and off ever since. Regrettable Joanne's heath got so bad that I did  not do it at all the last 15 years of her life. I am happy to be back.

My friend and I are planing to go back Monday. Among other things we are going to dig clay…

I want to try to pit fire potter like borger cord marked pottery
